On 06 January 2022, the South Tyrol Young Haflinger and Noriker Breeders’ Association welcomed horse fans to an exciting new racing format, marking the Feast of the Epiphany and showcasing the association’s three- and four-year-old mares. 
It was a sun-spoilt winter day at the Rabensteiner farmstead in the Sarentino/Sarntal valley – a perfect chance for the young mares to learn the ropes of winter-time racing on a flawlessly groomed track.

Combined racing: a top-notch mix
With a whole new format bringing together sleigh racing and skijoring to add extra thrills to the contest, the event aims to attract more young equestrian athletes. The recipe for success: In the morning, the horses had to master the race track pulling a sleigh and staying in trot all the while. Then, in the afternoon, they competed at a canter – with a jockey in the saddle and a skier in tow. The results of both competitions were then added up, with the winner being the horse with the best time.
